Just over a year after his messy split from Lala Kent, 32, which came after he was spotted in Nashville with a couple of other women, Randall, 51, has confirmed he will not be filmed for the new episodes while also admitting that he never wanted to be on the Bravo reality series to begin with.
“I never wanted to be on Vanderpump, but I respect the success of Vanderpump and I really wish all the people on that show [success],” Randall told The U.S. Sun on December 4. “I’m friends still with some of them. I just think what they’ve created is amazing and I give them so much love and praise, but in my life I’m focused on my children and focused on making films.”
When fans last saw Randall on Pump Rules in season nine, he was sitting down with Katie Maloney and Ariana Madix to discuss a potential investment in their sandwich shop, Something About Her, which is expected to open in Los Angeles sometime next year.
As Pump Rules fans will recall, Randall did not appear at the season nine reunion because he and Lala split before the special was filmed.
“The fact that this man, he knew what he was out doing and he made me feel safe enough to bring a child into the world, I feel disgusted,” Lala said of her and Randall’s split at the reunion, referencing their one-year-old daughter Ocean Kent Emmett.
In addition to his current custody battle with Lala, Randall is also feuding with ex-wife Ambyr Childers, 34, the mother of their two children, London, 12, and Rylee, 9, who attempted, unsuccessfully, to obtain a restraining order against him in October.
Still, despite Ambyr’s claims of emotional and verbal abuse, which Randall has denied, Randall told The U.S. Sun that they co-parent fairly.
“We have a schedule that we follow and I think that when it comes to holidays, we’re very fair when we share our children,” Randall said. “Like no matter what’s going on or no matter what’s being said, at the end of the day, our kids determine our fate in life, and we have to put them first.”
Randall also said that when it comes to Lala’s ongoing attacks, he’s willing to take them on the chin for his kids’ benefit.
“I will always allow myself to be steamrolled in exchange for my children’s safety and happiness. Let me be the joke for them if that’s what they need,” he stated.
Vanderpump Rules season 10 is expected to premiere on Bravo sometime next year.
